Woodpeckers frolicking in the Little Forest


Over the weekend I looked out of the window and saw these two woodpeckers flying around like crazy. They seemed to be very happy and when they peck on a dead branch like seen on the first photo, they make a lot of noise! Click on the photos to enlarge!
Am Wochenende habe ich aus dem Fenster geschaut u sah diese zwei Spechte wie sie zusammen draussen rumgeflogen sind, hin u her, als wuerden sie spielen. Sie erschienen ganz happy u ich sage euch, wenn sie an einem toten Ast rumhacken, wie auf dem ersten Bild zu sehen, dann machen sie ganz schoen Krach!Vergroessert die Fotos!

Hallo Gudl,
schon öfter habe ich dein Blog besucht und euer schönes Haus im Wald bewundert. Ihr lebt in einer herrlichen Idylle.
Spechte kann man bei uns auch hören, wenn sie im etwas entfernten Wald die Bäume "bearbeiten". Im Winter kann man sie auch manchmal im Garten beobachten. Ich freue mich dann jedes Mal darüber.
Liebe Grüße
Angelika

The little forest is quite alive now..I love watching Woodpeckers...they are loud...that is for sure and quite persistant in their work...I always look forward to seeing what nature is about in your forest...

Oh yes, these are downy woodpeckers. The one I have on my birds blog is a red-bellied woodpecker.

We had woodpeckers this week but I think they may have been drilling on a house. Many times they like to peck the siding off and get inside. Not good for the homeowner and the dead trees were taken down shortly after I heard the first ones and haven't heard them again. I love watching them too.

I love how red that little guy's head is. How brilliant to see in a forest of brown and green?
You live in a great area!

Don't you find them interesting? I could watch them for hours... well, maybe not hours.

I love these birds - I only get to enjoy them while we are camping though - they don't come near my home... Your pics of them are GREAT!

Great photos!

I love watching wood peckers, but I don't like it when they perch on our metal vent pipes and hammer at them early in the morning! hehe
